Wichita man gets 33 years in prison for fatal 2013 shooting

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been sentenced to about 33 years in prison for the slaying of a 23-year-old man two years ago.

The Wichita Eagle reports 25-year-old Manuel Rivas was sentenced Friday in the fatal shooting of Eric Salazar on Nov. 6, 2013. He had been found guilty of second-degree murder in March.

According to prosecutors, Salazar was shot in the head during an argument over money after two men forced their way into an apartment building. He later died at a hospital.
